Blue is the color, and 2 pillows done

So I thought I'd look at my crayons for guidance on the "real" color of blue.  (I hope this isn't a spoiler for you, but for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge  Angela of soscrappy has announced the color for January and it is blue.) So here are my findings.  It took me three different crayons before I found one that said simply "blue"... (I found Cornflower and Cerulean first.)

and here it is. I thought it a bit greyish blue, in person and for my tastes, so I looked up a few other blues for comparison. See below:

The one in the upper left is Pacific Blue, and lower left is Cerulean. On the right top is Cornflower and on the bottom right is Indigo. (Indigo is more my idea of blue.) We will see what the scrap bag and the stash have to offer. I'll have something as near to blue as I can get it by Saturday.
Good Luck to all the RSC players.
I finished the back on the second pillow cover today. (You know I'm slow.)

Yes, the second one is smaller... I boo booed, but no big. I didn't promise that they would be the same.

So tonight we are going to the movies. We're going to see Unbroken.

We would have had the grands over to play cards or board games and snack, but they are all still out of town. I hope they are having a wonderful time. I hope all my peeps are having a wonderful time tonight.... Be Safe! Drive defensively!

Hugs and Happy New Year!
